Sunela Foundation, in Partnership With GVNG, to Distribute Funds to Benefit Victims of Indonesia Plane Crash

LOS ANGELES, Nov. 27, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- GVNG.org, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, and the Sunela Foundation, founded by entrepreneur and philanthropist Diana Jenkins, announced today that they are preparing to distribute funds to benefit relatives of the 189 passengers and crew who were killed in 2018 when Lion Air Flight 610 crashed into the Java Sea shortly after takeoff in Indonesia.

Sanela Diana Jenkins donated $100,000 to benefit relatives of those who died on Lion Air Flight 610.

To date, more than $102,000 has been donated to benefit the victims of the Lion Air crash, said GVNG President Robbie Tombosky. The bulk of the donations came from Ms. Jenkins, who donated $100,000 for the project on Sept. 9, Mr. Tombosky said.

"Thanks to the generosity of Diana Jenkins and those who have donated to this project, GVNG is now developing the best way to use those dollars to benefit the victims of this tragic plane crash," Mr. Tombosky said.

Donations for the project can be made through December 31 at https://app.gvng.org/campaign/flight-610-victims-campaign.

Ms. Jenkins said she is happy to have the ability to support family members of those who died in the Lion Air crash.

"Now that the fundraising efforts are coming to a close, I look forward to working with GVNG to put those funds to work to benefit the victims," Ms. Jenkins said. "I feel so much sympathy to those who lost loved ones in this tragedy and hope that our efforts can provide some comfort to them."

All donations to this project are received and secured by GVNG, which is managing how those funds will benefit immediate family members of the Flight 610 victims. Money raised in this project is completely unrelated to ongoing litigation related to the tragedy.
